What people are saying about Southland

We loved the experience, even though my partner doesn't enjoy flying. Matt our pilot has fantastic at reassuring her & keeping her mind at ease. On the return flight from Milford Sounds, she began to enjoy it. The glacier landing was awesome & the views absolutely stunning. By the end of the flight you couldn't get the grin off her face & she was buzzing with excitement all evening. Matt has a brilliant sense of humour, professional, friendly & had excellent knowledge of the region. He even explained the engineering of how the helicopter worked, which I really enjoyed! A pity the cruise was only on the small boat, considering the amount of people on board, as there was little space. Large vessel next door was more accommodating. Had people not gone outside, it there wasn't room to sit. Food ran out in a few minutes & the eftpos machine died. Besides that it was a great cruise & stunning scenery. Fantastic memories & photos to cherish. Highly recommend flight & cruise.

Absolutely amazing and breathtaking views and scenery. Would HIGHLY recommend the helicopter. Won’t see anything more spectacular. The pilot and crew are so friendly and supportive. Great

Spectacular! Alfie our pilot was a awesome bonus! Once in a lifetime treat for us, highly recommend doing it, it takes your breath away.
